This Month’s Top Post: How I use Smart Things for Home Automation – 329 Views this month.  Originally posted in January 2016

This Month’s Runner Up: 2016 Review and 2017 Goals – 294 Views

This month I hit quite a large milestone!  5K Followers!  I’m now officially half way to my goal of 10k.  I also had more income than typical and I have no idea why.  I just got lucky I guess!


Ads – $216.40
Sponsored Posts – $5
Total: $221.40

Tailwind – $10..00
Domain – $1.26
Hosting – $6.99
Etsy – $0.80
Total: $19.05

NET INCOME: $202.35


Last month, I said that my goal was to get ahead in January because I was going to have a busy year.  What I didn’t realize is that January was going to be my busiest month in my day to day life.  Surprisingly, I was still able to get ahead!  I got all of my posts done for February and March except the house updates.  I’ll make those as new things keep happening at the house.

Since I’m ahead and now I’m headed into a bit of a slower time in my home life, I plan on focusing a bit more on growing the blog.  In February, I plan to join more Pinterest groups.  I’m currently in 18 groups.  It would be nice to double that this month.  I also plan on making some new content for Etsy and determining how frequently I want to add content.

Looking forward to a good month!

  1. Thanks for being so open with your income report! I’m trying to take my blog “to the next level” and start making some money from it. If you don’t mind sharing, what Pinterest boards are you part of?

  2. Awesome job! I have ads too but don’t do nearly as well. My next step is to try and seek out some additional ad networks. I love your milestone/goals/achievement charts – I’m definitely going to do that! Keep it up girl!

  3. Wow congrats! Thats amazing that you’re able to make $200 from ads with only 4K pageviews. I’m at 20K, yet I’m happy if I even manage to reach $100. Show me your secrets! haha

  4. Hi Kari!

    Thanks for sharing your income report! It is so nice having a blogger like you share your report and goals! Some of us are still just starting out and seeing the incremental steps to “making it big” is so nice.

    Keep it up!
